04:30:07 <DGInc> hello everyone
04:30:22 <Betty> hi DG
04:30:40 <DGInc> hi Betty
04:37:18 <DGInc> GT can be sometimes idiotically slow...
04:41:29 <DGInc> maybe Spasmodic?
04:49:26 <Graham> i am not seeing GT slowness
04:50:18 <DGInc> no, it might be because I'm rendering a video with my CPU, which sucks
04:51:04 <DGInc> other than that, the live streams are still loading very quick
04:52:26 <DGInc> hopefully they are also synced up
05:03:55 <DGInc> well... if GT is still slow with changed priority for Firefox, then I don't know it anymore
05:04:27 <Betty> Oblong?
05:05:01 <DGInc> JimS is there, hopefully he can give us an answer

06:14:28 <Betty> Daisy
06:14:39 <Betty> we just missed Lion ini
06:34:36 <Dave from B> Morning Graham, Betty, numbers
06:34:58 <Betty> Morning Dave
06:37:18 <Betty> OF
06:55:13 <Dave from B> Beautiful looking morning in OF
06:59:48 <Betty> yes, ist is
07:04:26 <Dave from B> Good morning Kevin
07:05:35 <Kevin L> Sounds like it was. I guess I can go back to bed now!
07:08:47 <Mike J> Good morning to all, and a happy father's day to those for whom it applies.
07:10:30 <Kevin L> Morning Mike.
07:13:00 <Mike J> Current temperature in Phoenix, 96, with a predicted high near 120
07:13:20 <Mike J> I should have gone to the park for Father's Day just like I did the last few years.
07:13:33 <Dave from B> Morning Mike...Yes, Happy Father's Day greeting to all fathers out there
07:16:34 <Kevin L> Days start getting shorter after tomorrow.
07:17:16 <Mike J> One of the reasons I like visiting the park now - lots of sunlight hours.
07:20:16 <Kevin L> Probably going to be toasty up there this week. Supposed to be between 112 to 116 here all week so I am guessing it may make it a bit farther north.
07:20:19 <Kevin L> Lion
07:21:15 <Dave from B> Billings highs around 85-95 all week
07:21:44 <Mike J> So, how close to all time records for Vegas or Billings?
07:22:37 <Kevin L> Supposed to shatter the all time record here tomorrow at 116. Think the record is 112.
07:23:05 <Dave from B> Most late June reconrds would be between 95 and 100, I presume
07:23:09 <Graham> surprised its that low
07:23:32 <Mike J> We're gonna get close - 122 is all time.
07:23:44 <Kevin L> Humidity is very low (around 4%) so swamp coolers are doing a stellar job. I didn't even turn on my AC unit yesterday.
07:24:42 <Mike J> I miss the piggy back system we had in our other house. Swamp cooler will freeze you out, even at these temperatures.
07:25:56 <Kevin L> over 120 is really bad. I remember doing a paving job in Laughlin where it was 123. We had to make sure they did the manholes properly so we needed to go out onto the hot asphalt. They laid the asphalt at over 300 degrees. It was horrible.
07:27:20 <Kevin L> Have you seen those Mastercool units? They have a pad that is like a corrugated box and has a depth of about 8 inches. They are expensive but really do the job.
07:28:42 <Mike J> When Phx hit 122, I was playing part time in a country band, doing convention work. We showed up in the afternoon and they had us set up on a cement slab that had been baking all day. All set up, all tuned up, ready to go, and they said it was too hot, we had to tear down and move everything inside.
07:28:49 <Kevin L> Temps at the park this week aren't bad at all. Forecast is between 65 and 75!
07:28:50 <Mike J> Not quite like 300 degrees, though.
07:29:30 <Mike J> Funny seeing people wearing coats as we sit with the blinds closed and the A/C cranked up.
07:30:01 <Kevin L> II can relate on that slab. You would think they would figure it out befre you got tuned up.
07:30:36 <Mike J> Just the price you and I pay for picking on everyone all winter long.
07:33:19 <Kevin L> When I first started working for NDOT they didn't even have AC in our trucks. The gods in cartooon city said "iIf we put AC in your trucks then all you would do it sit in your trucks and not work". We complained to a State Senator. He called the guy and told him that he was to remove the heaters from all the vehicles assigned to the cartoon (Carson) city area if that was the case. We got our A
07:33:36 <Betty> hi Mike J and Kevin L . Seems you are hot guys ;-)
07:33:48 <Kevin L> I would still take the heat over the snow.
07:33:53 <Dave from B> haha Betty
07:34:13 <Kevin L> :)
07:34:39 <Betty> we are currently at 64. I´m freezing a bit
07:36:01 <Graham> 80 and 43% here
07:36:03 <Kevin L> Once you get used to living in the desert it is tough to leave it. There are a few tough months, but for the most part it is great.
07:36:14 <Mike J> "Currently at 64" Betty, that is a little bit cruel.
07:36:31 <Betty> it is :-(
07:36:55 <Mike J> Kevin, I was born here, so I really don't know any better. Start thinking about a sweater when it gets in the 70s.
07:36:58 <Betty> I had to get out my long sleeve shirts again
07:37:02 <Kevin L> 88 and 7% here now.
07:37:33 <Mike J> Amazing the difference the humidity makes, though. The sun goes down, and it actually is not bad out.
07:38:10 <Kevin L> Same here Mike. I was born about 3 miles from where I live (as were all my kids) and I slept with 3 blankets and a bedspread last night!
07:38:25 <Mike J> And, Betty, you're killing me.
07:38:48 <Kevin L> The times I really don't like though is when the lows are in the 90s. I can do without that!
07:39:26 <Mike J> Monsoon season - higher humidities. Yep, a month or so of that and I'm ready for it to be over.
07:40:19 <Kevin L> You get that a lot worse than we do, but I agree 100% Humidity over 20% stinks!
07:40:27 <Betty> on wed they predicted high 80´s for us. sounds better
07:41:37 <Kevin L> Those days are bad for you Betty. I remember a lot of toasty Germans when I was there during the Summer.
07:42:34 <Betty> I´m born here, so I can deal with it :-)
07:45:31 <Kevin L> We walked up to the Kehlsteinhaus from Obersalzberg one Summer. (A totally awesome hike.) We were doing fine, but some of those locals were really stressing with the "heat".
07:45:54 <Betty> haha
07:47:09 <Kevin L> If you haven't done that one Betty, put it on your bucket list.
07:47:38 <Dave from B> I like the cold....kills bugs. Too many crawling creatures in the desert.
07:48:22 <Betty> it already is, Kevin
07:49:04 <Betty> I like having both: snow and heat
07:49:13 <Mike J> So that's three of us who were born where they still live. Kind of rare anymore. Anyone else out there?
07:49:52 <Kevin L> Funny thing Mike, I lived a couple of years where Betty lives!
07:50:37 <Betty> And my first stopover in US is where Kevin lives
07:51:21 <Kevin L> Funny how small the world can be at times!
07:51:32 <Betty> I´m always shopping in Henderson´s Walmart
07:51:44 <Betty> true
07:52:00 <Dave from B> Kevin, only my wife was born in a different hopspital. All born in Billings
07:52:29 <Mike J> My wife, my parents, and both my kids were born in the same hospital I was.
07:52:58 <Dave from B> wow
07:53:12 <Kevin L> That is neat!
07:53:50 <Betty> watch for Aurum, need to go to the kitchen
07:54:13 <Kevin L> Thanks for the warning.
07:55:39 <Dave from B> I feel sorry for my wife. She always has to share her birthday with Father's Day Weekend
07:56:14 <Mike J> Those shared birthday's are alwys a bummer
07:56:45 <Kevin L> Today is my brother's birthday so he gets to share it too.
07:57:29 <Kevin L> One of my friends had two kids born on April 23rd. That was interesting!
07:59:30 <Betty> back
08:00:02 <Betty> so is my sister-in-law with her brother. not twins!
08:00:54 <Kevin L> I think these two were 8 years apart.
08:01:14 <Kevin L> It was a family I met in Hanau.
08:01:55 <Betty> must be common here :-)
08:07:54 <Kevin L> Both the kids were bornin the US though!
08:10:16 <Betty> OF
08:10:32 <Dave from B> Time to head out, Have a great day everyone!
08:11:06 <Betty> same to you
